It's only legal to run OS X on an Apple-labeled computer, so that's what I'm using.


Still haven't bothered adding more cooling to the case since the last thread, need to fine someone with a drill press!

What power connector is that on your MBP? Doesn't look like the standard one.

It's a PowerBook G4. You can tell since the antenna isn't in the hinge.

After that grand display of opulence I feel bound to post my own example so that people might learn that not all Mac users are pro photographers.
Besides, I've got a new house and a new case but this Mac user is still LIVING LIKE poo poo!

You have a giant Hackintosh, a Dell keyboard, and a [i]Mighty Mouse[\i]!? WTF?

Get a MX Revolution or something....

I don't like side buttons or scroll wheels, so the Mighty Mouse is perfect for me. I do have a Dell bog standard mouse to the side there for games.

I figure every time I run out of space I will just bolt another arm onto it.

That's a really cute little setup! Doesn't seem very ergonomic though, does it get tiring to use the tablet?

It's times like this when I really wish that Mac keyboards still had the power button on them like they did back in the day. Why did they take such a useful feature out? I've got to fumble around on the back of my mac mini every time I want to turn it on (which admittedly isn't often, but still).

The official answer was that powering on the computer was a hack that was not in the USB spec. No as for why minutae like that would ever stop Apple of all companies; I have no idea. Maybe someone plugged it into a PSU and friend their power supply or mobo or something.

I don't believe that they'll power on a modern Mac anymore.

Although if any multi-Mac users are wondering about it, Teleport is a much better alternative to Synergy if both the controller and the controlled computers are Macs.

I don't think there's such a thing as a DVI+USB2 KVM that isn't a huge piece of poo poo (Belkin Flip) or stupidly expensive ($300 ATEN KVMs.)

Just to add to the continued questions...

2) interesting wallpaper - what's that from?

It's not a Mac Classic because it has a front keyboard socket. It's most likely a Plus.

I'm not sure why some bright spark doesn't just put all the screws and poo poo on the backside of the mobo rather than on the frontside where you have to contend with RAM/VRM/fan/heatsink clearances that make it awkward to fit the screwdriver/allen key/mini wrench they provide.

In contrast the back of the mobo has tonnes of room to work and even allows you to change the heatsink without removing the mobo from the case on most cases.

This thread moves depressingly slow.


After the initial rush they always do; I know that my desk looks the same as when I posted it two years ago (apart from a new mouse since then!)

When I save up for a thousand dollar chair I'll repost mine and you can marvel at the extremely rare three button mouse. (thanks nzspambot!)

edit: almost 3 years now and unfortunately waffleimages killed the picture of my ancient white generic tower case with the Apple Sticker Making It Legal.

My chair finally came today so I thought I'd update my ancient pic.



New mouse, keyboard and chair for a superior living like poo poo experience. Monitors, Mac and desk still the same old.

Edit: and it's good proof that not every Mac user is living in either a design catalogue or an Apple Store

Most decent spec Dell monitors have a rotating stand.

Where did you get that clock?

If you can live with not having an authentic (out of stock?) one then there are plenty of cheapies on DealExtreme.
I've seen them at Smiggle (trap sprung) too.

Honestly I'd think about moving your components to a smaller form factor case.

Leaving aside the cost/benefit ratio of SLI for the moment, I think he would require too much internal volume to go any smaller.

Doesn't your phone company send you free promotional/branded monitor stands every year?

Failing that, your local office supply store should sell modular monitor risers for just a few bucks each.

As long as we're bringing up history.

Backstory: Parents went out of town for two months, summer of 2003. Naturally, LAN party in the basement.


This could have been me. It's crazy what we used to do with CRTs and mum's kitchen table.

(I still have LANs occasionally but have to borrow trestles since nobody wants to even sit three to a table.)
